Summer Student/Faculty Collaborative Research Grants

The Summer Student/Faculty Collaborative Research program provides opportunity for Luther students to engage full-time in collaborative research projects with Luther faculty members during the two months of Luther's summer session (June/July).

Grants are available to students in any major. Each full grant provides $3,000 in stipend to the student for eight weeks of full-time research work, on-campus housing for the student, up to $500 for project expenses, and $500 in faculty development funds for the faculty member. Proposals for smaller or shorter research projects are also welcome this year.

All returning Luther students (current juniors, sophomores, and first-year students) are eligible. Project proposals must be written and submitted jointly by the student and faculty member. Collaborative teams normally involve one student per faculty member.  Priority is given to meritorious proposals from teams involving students who have not previously been funded through this program.
